The more the issue of racism is raised, the more people will be aware of why it's wrong to be racist.
Football can be used to influence society - let us use that influence to do something positive.

Show Racism the Red Card recently held an event at Anfield, home of Liverpool FC with stars past and present to promote our anti-racism message thanks to the support of Liverpool City Council and the Premier League/PFA Community Fund.
120 young people from the local area attended the event along with LFC midfielder Jay Spearing and former players, Howard Gayle and John Barnes.
Before the event started, the young people had the chance to have photographs taken with the Carling Cup recently secured by the club after a thrilling final against Cardiff City.
The young people took part in a day full of activities including an educational workshop from the Show Racism the Red Card team.
After watching the SRtRC film, the young people took part in a question and answer session with a panel of special guests including, John, Howard, SRtRC Education Worker Christian Roberts, Dominique Walker, General Secretary of Unite the Union, Len McCluskey, the Chief Executive and the Leader of Liverpool City Council, Ged Fitzgerald and Joe Anderson, Steve Rotheram MP, Liverpool Ladies Captain Vicky Jones and SRtRC Chief Executive Ged Grebby.
The day was a resounding success and there were some great prizes for the best questions, including a shirt signed by the full Liverpool FC squad very generously donated by the club.
Our event at Anfield is always one of the highlights of the season and we would like to express our sincere thanks to the panel, the club and our sponsors and look forward to working with Liverpool FC and Liverpool City Council next season.
Liverpoolfc.tv also covered the event on their website.
